Stacking containers at port terminals or transhipment points requires special vehicles with particular tyres. Both empty and full container stackers have to operate with absolute stability even when the lift mast is fully extended. Bohnenkamp provides specially developed tyres with very good traction and high payload for this area of application.
Whether solid rubber, radial, diagonal or pneumatic tyres are the best choice for forklift trucks is determined by the specific application. Dust, dirt, load capacity, mileage and traction play a big part in choosing the right tyre. Particularly high puncture resistance and large burdens are features of the small industrial tyre. From the food industry to mining there are different demands to fulfil.
In addition to straddle carriers, the reach stacker is an important vehicle in container loading. The reach stacker is constantly in operation, particularly in combined ship, train and HGV transport. With up to 50 tonnes hoist capacity and around 100 tonnes net weight, tyres on these industrial trucks must withstand an extremely heavy weight, be durable and at the same time possess great agility.
Tyres on a terminal tractor unit have to be completely robust and hard-wearing. High mileage on a mostly uneven floor or one afflicted by foreign objects ensures the need for a cut-resistant and strong carcass. As the vehicle is mostly used outdoors, good traction and wet grip along with a particularly low-wearing rubber compound are necessary.
